Traumatic Brain Injury-The Need to be Resilient

Resilience has been defined as, "the ability to adapt when faced with tragedy, trauma, adversity, hardship, and continuous life-stressors". In traumatic brain injury, resilience is about effective coping. When suffering a traumatic brain injury, resilient people can have a positive outcome regarding a number of aspects of their life.

Traumatic Brain Injury - Social Filters

People suffering from a traumatic brain injury can suffer damage to the prefrontal cortex or frontal lobes causing their "social filter" to be defective. The prefrontal cortex is located in the front of the brain. This area of the brain regulates behavior. This part of the brain acts as a social filter governing social control, suppressing emotional urges, sexual urges, and outbursts.
